41. HIST 103/103W: American History, 1607-1865

Contact:Frank Warren
Abstract:The content of this course provides an overview of the history of the United
States from the time of the first European settlement until the end of the
Civil War. It will focus on the interactions between indigenous, European and
African peoples in the areas which subsequently became the United States, the
demographic growth and political and economic development of the colonies
Europeans established, their decision to declare independence from Great
Britain, the new form of government they created, changes in the definition of
citizenship, the expansion of national territory, and the political, racial,
cultural, ideological, economic, and social evolution of the new nation.

The course is taught almost exclusively through the use of primary source
materials, both documents and visual records. Students are trained through
weekly assignments and classroom discussions to analyze these records according
to the document/record type, authorship, date of event and of creation of the
record and time of publication or dissemination, and the audience for which
they were intended. They are then required to describe and assess the message
the author intended to convey, to identify and set the record in its historical
context, to compare it with other documents/records dealing with the same
topic, and to see it as a link in a record chain that allows historians to
describe historical
developments.
